What is wrong with RNH?

I dont want this to become a trolling topic, I'm actually concerned.

Is he injured?
Sophomore slump?

Last year he was incredible, this year I dont even noticed him really. He still has his body jukes but where is the playmaking and under-rated shot?

Is Hall > RNH now?

He is playing against the opposition's top lines now. He was heavily sheltered last season.

There's another big thread about this. Some think he's still injured from before the WJHC.

About his play he has really focused on his defensive game and has done well with that. He had that goal called back against LA, hit posts and been unlucky in the goal compartment. He still has sick passes.

I think he will be better after the summer off to regroup and could surge next season with some big stats. Anyone who isn't an Oilers hater would agree he's a special player and will be great.

He's too smart and talented of a player to stay this mediocre for an extended period of time. I expect him to break out huge next year.

Pretty sure he is playing through a shoulder injury.

I agree you can tell from his shot velocity and accuracy.
